  • Increased overall awareness of self in relationship to other
  • Increased overall awareness of self in relationship to experiences

  • Increased attention regulation
  • Increased emotion regulation
  • Increased resilience
  • Increased compassion for self and others
  • Increased active listening
  • Increased access to reflective practice

*Note that one program does not achieve all of these outcomes; outcomes vary based on customization of each professional development opportunity.
